FAA Seeks $4 Million From UPS Over Alleged Violations
The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking a $4 million penalty from UPS for not complying with federal safety rules. The FAA says UPS did not follow federally-approved procedures for maintaining four planes, which allegedly went on more than 400 flights in 2008 and 2009. The agency further says UPS has not entirely complied with an agreement that required the company to check aircraft repairs against maintenance records. The FAA says had UPS followed the agreement, the penalty would not be necessary.
